Connect your calendar to Meetings

You can connect your calendar to Brevo Meetings. Connecting your personal or professional calendar to Meetings is a good way to automatically display your availabilities. 

There are three platforms you can connect to Meetings:

You can connect Meetings to your calendar during the onboarding, but you can also do it at any time afterward. You can also disconnect your calendar if you want to.

🤔 Why connect your calendar to Meetings? 

Connect your calendar to Meetings to simplify organizing, avoid double bookings, and manage meetings from your everyday calendar. Your booking pages will show your availability based on your calendar.

When you have an appointment on your calendar, clients cannot book a meeting at that time. If you book a meeting with a client, it will appear automatically on your connected calendar. If you cancel or reschedule a meeting, the changes will be reflected on Brevo Meetings after a few seconds. You can also inform the participants of the changes directly from your connected calendar.

  4. Depending on the type of calendar chosen, follow the steps required on the platform.
    💡 Good to know
    The steps are similar on each platform and mostly consist of choosing your account and authorizing Brevo to access it.

❗ Google Calendar anti-spam policy

❗️ Important
Due to Google Calendar's new anti-spam policy, if you have not interacted with a client by email before a booking, the meeting will not be automatically added to your Google Calendar. Your client will need to click the confirmation link they receive after the booking. To accept all bookings automatically, follow the procedure below.

To make sure all your bookings appear on Google Calendar automatically:

  1. From Google Calendar, click the Settings icon > Settings.
  2. Under General, go to Event settings.
  3. In the Add invitations to my calendar dropdown, select From everyone.

What happens once I've disconnected my calendar from Meetings? 

Your already planned meetings will still be displayed on your calendar. However, any future planned meetings will not be displayed. Your availability will not be set up according to your calendar anymore.
